TX: Kerrville pastor dies on hunting trip

Kerrville pastor dies on hunting trip

Monday, February 14, 2011

A memorial service will be held Tuesday for John A. Petty, senior pastor at Trinity Baptist Church in Kerrville, who died from a gunshot wound last week while on a hunting trip.

Foul play is not suspected, said Kerr County Sheriff Rusty Hierholzer, who reported that Petty's body was discovered Friday on a ranch northwest of Kerrville where he went hunting alone Wednesday.

An autopsy revealed Petty, 42, a married father of two, died from a single gunshot, said Hierholzer. “We're waiting on toxicology reports and we're going to be talking to his doctor,” he said.

A memorial service for Petty is set for 2 p.m. Tuesday at the church at 800 Jackson Road, Kerrville.
